I was diagnosed over 2 years ago and did really, really well. Then in October, I got acute bronchitis and the doctor in the ER gave me prednisone. Not knowing better, i took it. My blood sugar soared and since then, I haven't been able to get my blood sugar back into the great management level I had it. I am so discouraged and tired. Now I have asthma, a result of all the upper respiratory infections. I am 60 years old and have worked so hard to manage my numbers. Feel like just giving up because it feels like it is a constant battle and I am not getting ahead. Soon as I get one thing together, then something else gets in the way and I am starting all over again. Help, please? Advice, please? I think I am just tired and am still stick.
